“There are good singers out there. There really are - but not well known. Like Lynn Stein.”
WNYC-FM Jonathan Schwartz
“Lynn Stein's singing combines a love for the process of making music with personal honesty and an exciting sense of freedom of expression. Her interpretations of standards are as equally surprising and heartfelt as her explorations of other genres. She is a musician's singer, and a delight to her audience.” Warren Vache
"A great singer with a great sound, Lynn Stein is a truly gifted and unique interpreter of lyrics. A vocal stylist that can swing hard and break hearts. Lynn Stein is the real deal." Houston Person
“The cherry on top is Stein, whose pure straight tone vocals, reminiscent of Irene Kral and Julie London, gives each cut a sense of honestly and flair.” John Amodeo, Cabaret Scene Magazine
